If you are remodeling your bathroom, you may be wondering how to conserve space without sacrificing comfort or functionality. For the smallest bathrooms, toilets that can be tucked into a corner are worth considering. With its corner mount design and extra-tall seat height, the American Standard Cadet 3 Triangle Toilet is a great small corner toilet for space saving.

Product Overview

The triangle-shaped tank allows you to install the toilet in the corner of a room, freeing up space in even the tiniest bathrooms. This design is becoming especially popular with the rise of tiny houses, as corner toilets can even fit in small closets that have been remodeled into bathrooms!

American Standard 270BD001.020 Cadet 3

  • Ever Clean antimicrobial surface
  • Oversized 3 inch flush valve
  • 12-Inch Rough-In
  • Why we like it: The triangle-shaped tank allows you to install the toilet in the corner of a room, freeing up space in even the tiniest bathrooms. 

This space-saving toilet is also designed to stay fresher and cleaner than standard toilets. It features an EverClean coating, which prevents bacteria and mold from growing – meaning fewer stains and odors, even after months of use. It is also coated in stain-proof and scratch-resistant vitreous china, making it especially easy to clean.

The tank boasts a 1.6-gallon flush, which is far more efficient than water-wasting standard toilets. This can help you save money on your utility bills and reduce your environmental impact without any added effort.

The extra-tall seat height makes this toilet especially comfortable. It is also ADA-compliant, so it is accessible for people of all ages and abilities, including elderly or disabled loved ones.

Smarter flushing system

Do you want to reduce your water consumption without sacrificing that familiar toilet handle? It is absolutely possible to choose a more efficient model without switching to the button-operated dual-flush toilets.

This model features a tank that only uses 1.6 gallons per flush – or less than 20% of a standard toilet flush! That can add up to thousands of gallons of water savings, which can dramatically lower your water bills over time. Saving water also helps reduce your environmental impact, since fresh water is a limited resource.

Because this model’s tank holds more than enough water for each flush, the water pressure from the extra water helps sweep everything cleanly out of sight. You can also control how much water you use by only lightly pressing down the handle to use less, or vice-versa. There is also an oversized 3” flush valve that further contributes to the flush performance.

Since the reduced flush volume doesn’t change the functionality of the toilet by much, it can make saving water nearly effortless. This means that you can easily reduce your entire family’s environmental impact.
